    Background

    Since 1995 many people have visited our Permaculture Garden Open Days for inspiration, permaculture design ideas and to look at how our permaculture garden ideas have developed over time. It is always a pleasure to meet return and new visitors and welcome them to observe the way in which we are interacting with the land and to hear their feedback about our property. For the past 5 years, and continuing this year, a donation to Permafund has been made by Brogo Permaculture Gardens based on Open Days receipts.

    ​The Brogo property features an owner built, solar powered mudbrick home, composting toilet and grey-water system. Fundamental to the management of the property is the integration of animals with native and exotic plant food systems. The scale and design is based on a rural property of a large family but the principles can be utilised anywhere. ​
    Brogo Permaculture Gardens also has a developing Asian food garden, orchard with ducks, free ranging chickens, earthworks including food forests, swales and shelterbelt.

    Other projects are underway including a purpose built storeroom, natural swimming pool and primitive camping area. The property is an example of design strategies that work in the Bega Valley providing self-reliance for an uncertain future. Visitors gain an understanding of good permaculture garden design and layout and why it works. On a typical tour day John leads a guided tour around the property and finishes in the home.

    Please note that we cannot accommodate animals on the tour. We appreciate the love you have for your pet but not everyone enjoys the company of animals nor do we have any control on their behaviour. We have one, old spoiled dog and he does not like other animals. Please don't ask as we have to refuse. ​

    Make a weekend of it! Brogo and the Bega Valley are great places to spend the weekend. Each Friday there is a farmers market in Bega and others markets in different localities. You could go canoeing on the Brogo Dam or visit Mumbulla Mountain. Beautiful beaches are all around and the area has some great accommodation options and food.
